Shifting Left: How DevOps Strengthens Teams and Saves Money

For many software development teams, even agile teams, it feels like testing and stakeholder validation come at the end of the process. Teams want to move on and move fast, but problems are discovered and the whole thing feels like a bottleneck that strangles productivity. Or worse. The frustration can lead to pointing fingers and bad blood between developers and stakeholders.

But when you “shift left,” you find problems earlier. Testing and validation can be sprinkled throughout the whole cycle. Powered by a good DevOps setup, shifting left can save your organization money and improve team morale.
